Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnamese Government always wishes to bolster its cooperation with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in all aspects based on each side’s potential, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc told new UAE Ambassador to Vietnam Obaid Saeed Bintaresh Al Dhaheri in Hanoi on July 27.

Emphasising the great potential for the two countries’ cooperation, the Government leader hoped that during his tenure, the ambassador will do his utmost to foster the strong and effective development of the bilateral relations, in terms of politics, diplomacy, trade, investment, culture, and people-to-people exchange.

He affirmed that Vietnamese agencies will create every condition for the ambassador to fulfill his tasks, contributing to developing the bilateral ties in a more practical and effective manner.

For his part, Obaid Saeed Bintaresh Al Dhaheri spoke highly of Vietnam’s socio-economic development achievements and stressed that senior UAE leaders always wish to boost all-round relations with Vietnam.

As in the Middle East-Africa region, the UEA boasts the largest trade value with Vietnam, the two countries should deploy numerous measures to improve the efficiency of bilateral trade cooperation in the time to come, he said.

The ambassador proposed the PM instruct relevant agencies in Vietnam to facilitate the grant of visas to UAE citizens, thus encouraging and promoting tourism connection and people-to-people exchange between the two countries.
